I just love the stamp designed by Nora Bansett, this stamp is simply called "Hummingbird".
I stamped the image onto high quality card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored it in with my copic markers. To add a bit of interest to the green I added in just a hint of blue.
The image has a small flower toward the bottom of the stamp, which is really cute, but since I was going for a more subdued look, I chose to fussy cut this small flower away from the main image. This freed the bird up to look more in flight.
I then used dimensional dots to place the image on the front of the checkbook cover. The checkbook cover is a sizzix die, This die is currently on sale from $40.00 to $7.99. What a fantastic savings, please click here to buy the die.
I will admitt the first time I put the pieces of the die cut together, I had to channel my inner 1st grader and remember how to tie a shoe. It was just kinda that type of day.
Stamp Happy, go visit queen kat and go blog hopping! Have a great day!
